• Shocks and struts help to hold your tires down on the road, provide a smooth ride and keep your vehicle stable during turns and over bumps.
  • As the internal parts wear, the shock/strut loses its ability to perform these functions.
  • In severe cases the oil inside the shock will start to leak out. Most shocks/struts have a life expectancy of around 60,000 miles.
  • They should also be replaced if they begin to leak. In many cases, the mounts will also require replacement and an alignment should be done when struts are replaced.
